The album's title is a pretty good hint that Neon Leather Drip has a sense of humor, albeit a juvenile one, and it's on display throughout the album. With lyrics about "chokin' chickens in the kitchen" on "Throwin' Hott Dogs" and references to "fried testicles with honey glaze" on "Beef Shock-a-Loc-a," it all may be a bit much for those who don't enjoy lowbrow humor. And whether the band, working here with funk and electronica-flavored hip-hop, is making fun of over-the-top egocentric hip-hop artists or just having a naughty laugh matters little. There are some very catchy grooves lurking here in tunes like the New Wave-y "Strip Club Sandwiches," the Prince/Devo mash-up of "Meat Slice" and the funky downbeat beats of the delightfully-titled "The Poo'd on Corpse." The bottom line is that the music is fun and you won't want to turn it off even if you're a little offended by the lyrics. So be prepared to get hooked and have lines like "treat my body like a Porta Potty" running through your head all day. Neon Leather Drip features members of experimental/avant garde outfit Florida = Death.
